Etgar Keret : The Seven Good Years

Ali Millar in conversation with Etgar Keret an internationally acclaimed novelist who now turned his hand on memoir, at this year’s Edinburgh Book Festival. Etgar Keret was declared ‘a genius’ by the New Yorker: The Seven Good Years, translated into English by Sondra Silverston, Miriam Shlesinger, Jessica Cohen and Anthony Berris, is his account of raising a son in Tel Aviv, while also losing his father. Moving deftly between the personal and the political, the playful and the profound, The Seven Good Years takes a life-affirming look at the human need to find good in the least likely places, and the stories we tell ourselves to make sense of our capricious world.

Listen to our engaging and personal interview on his new memoir, family and writing.
